Are You a Red Cup Christian

Are You a Red Cup Christian

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,480|Likes:
Picture the scene: You’re standing on a corner in a college town and see hundreds of students holding red cups. Like those red cups, the people blend in and all look the same. Everyone seems the same on the outside, and you’re unable to see anything on the inside.

In many ways, this scene represents the challenges you face as you move from high school into young adulthood. You may be going from a relatively sheltered environment to one of full freedom, and that transition can be difficult. Will you conform to the culture around you, or will you pursue a stand-out faith in this fit-in world?

Veteran youth worker Lars Rood is convinced that you can chart a course that will make your faith an essential part of your life. As you prepare for life after high school, you don’t have to be a red-cup Christian: someone who blends in and looks the same as the culture around you.

Drawing on the experiences of his own faith journey, Lars will guide you on the adventure of standing out instead of blending in, of fully embracing your faith and living it out.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
In other books I’ve written, I don’t think I’ve ever formally acknowledged the youth workers who were involved in my life growing up. They had a profound impact on me, especially during middle school and my first couple of years of high school. They loved me, always encouraged me, and made youth group a place that I always wanted to be. I hope that I model that to the students that I work with today. I’d also like to thank my current Family Life Ministry team at Bellevue Presbyterian Church (Belpres) for being such a great team that really cares about young people and the transitions they make. With God’s blessing, we will help kids grow into young adults who have a stand-out faith. Lastly, I’d like to thank my family. I write because I feel called to it, and you have all supported me in many projects and made it so much fun to be transparent and honest. Thanks for continuing to encourage me to grow into the man of God that I’m supposed to be. My hope is that I model what I write about—and you four, above anyone else, have the freedom to call me out when I don’t.
